The International Conference on Regional Climate (ICRC)-CORDEX 2016 focused on high resolution climate information and its applications to the vulnerability, impacts and adaptation community.
At the ECRA Side Event "Extreme events in a changing climate - Challenges and perspectives in hydro-meteorological modelling", invited guests from the climate modelling community shared their experiences with the CORDEX project, climate services and possible applications. The discussion focussed on the needs for better understanding and bridging the temporal and spatial scale gaps between climate system modelling, high resolution hydrological modelling and impact assessments.
The panel concluded that:
- A better understanding of future risks of extreme events needs the involvement of the stakeholders and data users.
- For better representation of extremes, scientific efforts are needed to take on higher model resolution.
